#3445123 Spiro Alternatives

Posted by mikito on 03 August 2014 - 02:56 AM

Hi Yarka, I´m writing this post because I think I can help you sharing with you my experience. I'm female, 44 years old, and suffering from cistic acne since I was 15. I have tried everything, including accutane but nothing worked for me. The only thing I don't know if it Works its spiro because I fainted the first week I was taking it, because I have low pressure.


I year ago, I discovered this forum, and I tried saw palmetto 320 mg per day, and my cistic acne is almost cured . 90% cured.  It ,s the only thing that Works for me. I bought a bottle with 120 soft gels, Gnc Brand, it contains 15 mg zinc, saw palmetto 120 mg for each soft gel, and another african plant that I don,t know the name in english,


I had my hormone tested last month,  but never reveals anything abnormal, I think in most cases of acne, blood tests are useless. I live in Spain, and here every test is free, you don,t need to have a private insurance,  but the blood test never shows anything.

And I forgot to say that for me was very helpfull to review all the posts written by Greengables, She knows a lot about this stuff. Thank you again, Green Gable.

#3341279 What Really Worked For My Oily Skin

I am posting to report my great success with zinc gluconate ( 30 mg/ twice a day), amazing 80% cured, better for me than accutane and even Diane 35. Actually I am taking diane 35 + zinc, almost cured after three months, but still oilly face.


My next step is B5 (500 mg). I would like to ask Fredbelgian, didn't you have hair lost or other adverse side effect with B5? I am little scary.

Thank you FredBelgian, I,ll try B5 + l-carnitine, but I am afraid of taking higher doses of vitamine A. Actually I am experimenting just with 32 mg of zinc gluconate.


But it's a mess, some people has reported to have success with zinc + chromium, others with vitamine D3, others with B5 + L-carnitine, and you vitamine A, I want to try all of them, but separately in order to know what work and what doesn't work. I will keep updating.

#3332799 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Thank you sebumsucks for sharing your personal experience with us.


I am female, 43 years, and still suffering from cystic acne. I have tried everything included three courses of Accutane. But I haven't found the cure yet.


Actually I am trying with zinc gluconate, for two weeks and It´s too soon to get conclusion.


Very interesting what you tell about vitamine D3, I,ll try it if zinc doesn't work. And after that I will try B5 + carnitine, because wideserpent had sucess with this stuff.


The only thing I can assure, is that sun exposure is not the clue, because I live in Spain, in an Island and we have too much sun. This island is Ibiza, and if you have heard of it, its famous for sun and beaches. And sun is not the clue.

Fredbelgian, your testimony is very important for me. I am 43 years, female, and still suffering from cystic acne. I would like to ask you when you say your state is 100% clear, do you mean you don't have clogged pores, because I don't have pustules but I have little hard sebum under my skin, that break my skin, and I cant avoid picking, and  start bleeding. do you know what I mean?


The question is at the time you were taking b5 +lcarnitine, do those hard sebum in your skin disapear?
